Michael Irvin, one of the greatest wide receivers of all time, made headlines when he decided to show up to court in a full-length fur coat. In summer. In Texas. Back then, he was known for his loud suits from European fashion houses and his chunky jewelry. A profile of him in a 1996 Sports Illustrated article began by describing what Irvin was wearing: "an electric-purple, a diamond Superman necklace, and gold-plated sunglasses." Pretty par for the course for Irvin, and that's why athletes emulated his expensive tastes. As usual, the superstar receiver was unapologetic for his flamboyant fashion, saying "'I dress like I dress.'" These days you can catch Michael still trying to capture some of that old magic while analyzing football every Sunday, and it just ain't working.
